Vela has told United that top clubs will be interested in his fellow Mexican. Vela is convinced Hernandez has to consider leaving United if he does not play regularly.
“Javier is my good friend – and I hope he gets lots of chances this season at Manchester United,” Vela told The People.
“He is one of the best finishers in England and deserves chances under the new coach.
“If he plays regularly he will score, so I don’t totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.
“If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving.
“You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs – but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him.”
